"Excellent cookies. Got rave reviews from about 30 people. I did substitute margarine for the Crisco Butter Shortening - Sorry Crisco. I didn't have any Crisco. Very easy, very quick, nice presenta..." See moretion with the powdered sugar. I doubled the recipe and got 76 cookies. I'll be making more of these for Christmas."
